GT2 RS hi

Are there Porsches you shouldn’t modify?

GT2 RSMost of us have got used to the idea of upgrading a fairly modest air-cooled 911 to make it look like a 2.7 RS, but what about more modern examples? This 997 GT2 has been modified and tuned to GT2 RS ‘and beyond’ spec – 750bhp, handmade wheels, fancy diff, etc, etc, etc  – but is yet to attract much interest from buyers, despite being half the price of the genuine item. Is that because they think you should just leave a GT2 alone? Is it wrong to try emulating the spirit of the RS version if it’s not an exact replica?

Give us your thoughts…
